TBL Challenge Week #2 Day #1 & weigh in

Evening update ~ I have updated my challenge page, my weight page and all of the ’stat’ information on my main page. It is all actual numbers now. I hadn’t changed anything at all over the Christmas holiday. I had gained during that time and lost a few then gained a few back. Played with it like it was a yo-yo. Now I have officially lost 3 lbs. of it again and will continue to. So instead of the 49 lbs. I was down, now I’m down 42. How many times can one person lose the same weight over and over?? I’m so glad that I have jumped into this challenge with Jenn and Elizabeth. I needed something so badly to get me back on the ball and stop the messin’ around. Tonight was the first night of tackling the High-intensity workout on the TBL dvd and it was AWESOME. This was the same workout that I posted about on the first day that I received the DVD. The one where I said I didn’t even make it 10 minutes and thought I was going to die and find my body parts falling off as I stumbled for the bed??? That is THE high intensity workout. Obviously it’s not the best workout to start off with, but in the month since I received the DVD and only doing it seriously and steadily for the past week, tonight I did the whole 20 minute workout. I can feel the tolerance level in my body changing. I’m able to handle more of a workout and my breath and heart rate recover so much quicker than before I started this challenge.

As I was doing the workout tonight, it came to the cool down / stretch and you rest your hands on the top of your thighs, and I did a double take and kept squeezing the top of my leg. My hand goes OVER the top of my leg now. Not lays across the width of my leg anymore, but my fingers actually BEND and wrap OVER my leg. It’s getting THINNER. Damn good feeling!

Morning post ~Weigh in day…I was nervous. I had lost a bunch the first couple of days, then saw the scale creep up a little even though I was eating good and working out EVERY FRIGGIN DAY - GO ME!!!

So I went from nervous to super happy I lost 3 lbs. this week I haven’t had a chance to update my workout chart and all, but I have been at it every single day New workout starts tonight, I’m excited to see what it’s like…I will update everything tonight when I get home…Jenn and Elizabeth, I’m coming to see what your weigh in was like too!!!

It sounds like you are doing great! I’ve played with the same 4 lbs for the last 5 weeks. But let me let you in on a secret. I’ve been following South Beach Diet way of eating since the middle of september. I am ALSO following my WW points (can’t give it up, you know?). I’m 4 years older than I was when I lost my baby weight with WW (then promptly got pg). I had a major double umbillical hernia after that pg and didn’t work out because it hurt so much. After I got it fixed I continued to laize around for almost a year.

I’ve now been following the ‘diet’ for 4 months and exercising for about 2 months. The ONLY thing that has changed is my following the SBD way of eating (4.5 cups of veggies a day, 3 meals and 3 snacks most days, protein at most of these). I have a Tanita bodyfat scale and I can NOT believe the difference in my measurements. I’m the same percent bodyfat I was at 12lbs lighter following only WW points. I’m wearing pants that I wore 15 lbs lighter. I’ve lost about the same amount of total weight in this time period but virtually all of it is fat this time and half of it was fat before.

With being almost 40 and having had 3 babies, I ougth to be having problems maintaining muscle with the very little true strength training I am doing (basically hills on my treadmill). I walked before, I walk now. No real difference except that I ‘might’ work out a little harder now because I have a heart rate monitor that I use to push myself a little.

I just wanted to share this with you. I’d recommend that you look into the South Beach Diet way of eating as a supplement to the success that you are having. It may shake your metabolism up a bit. I’m usually over points just a bit but with the dairy and protein I think that is helping my fat loss a LOT.

You are still an inspiration. I come here every day to see what is up. I’ve lost about 25 lbs (it is +/- right now). I have 30-50 to go as I don’t really know what my true goal weight should be at this point. I REALLY want to see 199 right now. I’ve been hovering at 203-205 for 5-6 weeks! I so know what you feel sometimes.
